Cardiac arrhythmias: Expression of connexin 43 in infarct scar cuts cardiac arrhythmias after heart attack

Life-threatening #cardiac_arrhythmias often occur after a #heartattack, as the scar tissue can interfere with the spread of electrical impulses that activate the heart. Scientists have now developed a method to improve electrical transmission in the heart by transferring a single gene, Connexin 43, to cells that form the infarct scar.
